Indispensable Deck Plate Key Makes Ideal Gift
December 1, 2017
Most boats use flush-mount deck plates to provide discreet, convenient access to wiring, plumbing and other internal components. Yet opening them can sometimes prove challenging, especially when they haven't been used for long periods. The simple solution to this problem - and an ideal gift - is the DPA-4 Deck Plate Key from Beckson Marine.
A compact, multi-purpose tool, the DPA-4 Deck Plate Key can be used with screw-out, pry-out and twist-out plates, as well as drain plugs. Formed from high-strength acetal resin in high-visibility yellow, the lightweight tool is approximately 7" long for an easy fit in standard tool boxes, glove boxes and storage trays.
Two molded-in tabs on the base edge of the tool fit into the recessed ports on screw-out and twist-out deck plates, allowing it to function as a spanner wrench for greater leverage and grip. One end of the key features a convenient pry tool that makes it easy to free tight pry-out plates. Its opposite end incorporates a drain plug slot wrench, which can also be used to secure the key to a lanyard or hang it for storage. The ultimate gift or stocking stuffer, the Beckson Marine DPA-4 Deck Plate Key sells for $5.80.
